My Apparent Lack of a Green Thumb

So I’m obviously better off enjoying nature outside than trying to master it indoors.

 

I recently made a delicious homemade pesto sauce and decided it would be a great idea to grow my own basil at home. After all, it will be cheaper and save a lot of hassle – right? That’s what I thought at least.

 

My plan was to buy two basil plants – that way I’d be able to alternate using them. Plus, caring for two is only a little more work than one anyways. But things didn’t end up working out so well.

 

Within a few days the first plant started turning brown and by the end of a week I could tell there was no saving it. I was still hopeful though, because plant #2 was still going strong.

 

Now, less than two weeks later, the second plant is showing the same signs of impending doom. I’m going to do what I can, but I’m not very hopeful at this point. I guess I’ll just stick to buying by basil at the store instead.
